COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. 



STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 
Office ot thb Board of Raii^road Commissioners, 

Raleigh^ December ^i^ i8gi. 

To His Excellency Thomas M. Holt, 

Goifernor of North Carolina, p 

Sir : — In compliance with law, the Railroad Commissioners 
respectfully submit their first report,; beginning the first day of April, 
1891. 

On the first day of April, 1891, members of the Board of Com- 
missioners convened at the Capitol in Raleigh. Present — James W. 
Wilson, Chairman; T. W. Mason and E. C. Beddingfield, Associate 
Commissioners. 

After taking the prescribed oath of oflBce, administered by Asso- 
ciate Justice A. C. Avery, of the Supreme Court, they proceeded to 
the election of H. C. Brown, Clerk of the Board. 

After their organization, as soon as practicable, the Commissioners 
proceeded to adopt Rules of Practice in cases and proceedings before 
the Commission, and also rules governing the transportation of 
freight and passengers, in pursuance of the Act creating the Com- 
mission. Before entering upon this work. Chairman Wilson visited 
the Commissioners of Georgia and made a study of their rules and 
procedure and the workings of the Commission in that State. The 
Chairman v. as induced to make this visit because the Act of 'North 
Carolina was similar to that of Georgia in many respects, which 
latter Act had been in operation for a period ol ten years. It also 
appeared that the Act of Congress, creating the Inter-state Commerce 
Commission, had been copied by the General Assembly in many of 
its sections and provisions. Therefore, in adopting Rules of Practice 
and rules governing the transportation of freight and passengers, the 
Board have followed mainly those adopted by the Inter-state Com- 
merce Commission and the Commission of Georgia, making such 



4 REPORT OF NORTHJCAROLINA 

changes therein as the dififerences in the North Carolina Act and our 
conditions suggested. These rules are herewith filed and appear as 
a part of this report. 

The enormous amount of capital invested in the leading trunk 
lines, and the power thus granted without control, necessarily led to 
excesses and the want of proper regard to the rights of citizens. 
This led to mutual distrust and want of confidence, whereby the 
public interest as well as the success of the railroads suffered. The 
interest of each is promoted by good feeling and mutual prosperity. 
To deny corporations a -reasonable and fair compensation on their 
investment, or burden them with unreasonable legislation, as well as 
taxation? is contrary to public policy, it being evident that the pros- 
perity of railroads enables them to give better accommodations and 
to serve the public more satisfactorily. The Commission has in .all 
matters endeavored to adopt a conservative course as a friendly umpire 
between the railroads and the public; and the universal courtesy 
shown by the various officials, and their readiness to redress griev- 
ances, induces us to believe that our efforts in this regard have been 
of benefit. 

As the Commission has been in operation only a portion of a year, 
the report is necessarily imperfect. We can briefly state, however, 
that on all roads making actual expenses, the charges for fare and 
freights have been reduced; and all unjust discriminations, origina- 
ting within the State, under our control and brought to our attention, 
have been corrected. The Commissioners' standard rates now in 
effect are lower than in any other Southern State. Until our popu- 
lation becomes more dense, and manufactories more numerous, rates 
cannot be established as now exist in States north of us without 
bankrupting the corporations. 

The taxable property of the railroads was assessed: 

In 1890 at $12,321,704.00 

In 1891 at 18,423,298.28 

Showing an increase of $ 6,101,594.28 

In making a fair and uniform rate of taxation, the Commission 
was much embarrassed, for the following reasons: Two of the very 
largest systems, viz., the Seaboard Air Line and Wilmington & 



RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 5 

I 

Weldon and Atlantic Coast Line, claimed, the former partial and the 
latter entire, exemption from taxation, for all time, for its main line 
and so-called branches; in fact, go so far as to claim the right, if 
desired, to build a branch line from Goldsboro or Wilmington to 
Murphy, from the extreme east to the extreme west, and to be pro- 
tected by the exemption clause of the Act. This assumption is con- 
troverted by the Commission, and a suit is now pending by which it 
is hoped to compel them to bear their just proportion of the public 
burdens. Another difiBculty was from the fact that many existing 
roads did not make their actual expenses, and consequently could 
meet no tax at all commensurate with the cost of construction. The 
projectors of these lines being, not speculators, but enterprising, 
progressive citizens and counties, expected their earnings in* the 
advancement of their section, and not in dividends. Upon such a 
seemingly low rate was fixed. 

The machinery for taxation, as prescribed in section 47 of the Act 
constituting the Commission a Board of Appraisers, was drawn to 
meet the case of the North Carolina Railroad, and can be applied to 
no other, from the fact that, by its charter, its road-bed is exempt 
from taxation, and the 'capital stock bearing a market value, which 
is an exception to all other roads not claimed to be altogether free 
from taxation. By attempting to apply the method, as indicated 
above, its impracticability will be at once discovered. The net earn- 
ings of an entire road, or a portion of a road, was considered the just 
basis for valuation, and not the cost of construction. As an illustra- 
tion, the Western North Carolina Railroad was assessed in three 
divisions — the first, from Salisbury to Old Fort, being first-class in 
every respect, streams crossed with iron bridges and stone viaducts, 
the track laid with heavy steel rail, entitled it to a good valuation. 
The mountain section, upon which the grading of one mile would 
equal in cost that of ten miles on the first division, was rated lower, 
for the reason that an assisting engine is necessary to overcome the 
mountain grade, thereby increasing the expense of its management 
and thus reducing net profits. The third division, from Asheville to 
Murphy, has even steeper grades, the crossings of streams made with 
temporary structures, laid mostly with old chair rail, having been in 
service since 1856. This section has never earned actual expenses. 



6 REPORT OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

and cannot, with any degree of justice, be rated as either the first or 
second. 

The horrible disaster at Bostian bridge, on the Western North 
Carolina Railroad, resulting in the death of twenty-two persons and 
the seriously maiming of twenty-six, would certainly come within the 
purview of the Act empowering the Commission to investigate at 
their discretion the cause of the wreck. Agreeable thereto, a careful 
examination was made, and information obtained from every possible 
source, and the result is now on file in this office. The Act does not 
clearly define what further action should be taken, or to whom or 
when a report should be made, and, as the responsibility of the acci- 
dent is to be judicially determined, we deem it improper to embody 
our views in this report. 

Telegraph and Express rates have been reduced and made uniform. 
Copies of these tariffs are herewith attached and made a part of this 
report. 

There are sixty-seven railroads in North Carolina with a total 
mileage of 3,432 miles, every county in the State being penetrated 
by one or more roads, except the counties of Alleghany, Ashe, Clay, 
Dare, Graham, Hyde, Pamlico, Transylvania, Tyrrell, Watauga, 
Yadkin and Yancey. 

The various complaints made to the Commission, and our action 
upon the same, are also embodied in this report. Other complaints, 
not of public importance, do not appear. These were called to the 
attention of the management complained of and were readily 
redressed. 

As another report has to be submitted before the next session of 
the Legislature convenes, we have deferred until then any sugges- 
tions we' may have to make for the perfection of the Act. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES W. WILSON, 

Chairman, 

T. W. MASON, 

E. C. • BEDDINGFIELD, 

Associate Commissioners.

RULES OF PRACTICE 



IN 



CASES AND PROCEEDINGS, 

AD0F>TE:D AF>RIL 21, ISQl. 



PUBLIC SESSION. 



1. The general sessions of the Commission for the hearing of con- 
tested cases will be held at its office in the Agricultural Building, 
Raleigh, N. C, on such days and at such hours as the Commission 
may designate. Sessions for receiving, considering and acting upon 
petitions, communications and applications relating to business before 
the Commission, and also for considering and acting upon any busi- 
ness of the Commission other than contested cases, will be held, 
unless otherwise directed, at its said office in Raleigh, at 11 o'clock 
A. M., on Wednesday of every week. When special sessions are held 
at other places such regulations as may be necessary will be made by 
the Commission. 

PABTIES. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be 
done by only a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if 
it relates to joint tariffs, or matters in which two or more carriers 
doing business under a common control, management or arrange- 
ment for a continuous carriage or shipment are interested, all the 
carriers constituting such line must be made parties. A complaint 
may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated separately, 
in the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the 
several carriers or lines. Persons or carriers not parties may apply, 
in any pending case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be 
heard upon the questions involved. 



34 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



GENERAL RULES. 



PBOCEEDDfOS BEFORE THE COMHISSIOB. 



3. All petitions and complaints made before the Commission for 
redress of alleged grievances, must plainly and distinctly set forth 
the grounds of complaint; the items being numbered and objections 
all set forth in writing. In like manner all defences must be dis- 
tinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as above stated. 
These specifications, whether of complaint or defence, may be accom- 
panied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by 
any suggestion as to the proper remedy of policy, and may be veri- 
fied by the affidavit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken 
before any person authorized to administer oaths in North Carolina, 
and when the complaint or petition is verified, then the answer thereto 
shall be verified, and the verification shall conform to the rules pre- 
scribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verification of plead- 
ings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attorney, or by 
written argument, upon such written statement being first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insuf- 
ficient to show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an 
answer, serve on the complainant notice for a hearing of the case on 
the complaint ; and in case of the service of such notice, the facts 
stated in the complaint will be taken as admitted. A copy of the 
notice must at the same time be filed with the Commission. The 
filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency 
of the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be 
made at the hearing. 

SERVICE OF PAPERS. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the oppo- 
site parties to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any 
party shall have appeared by attorney the service upon the attorney 
shall be deemed proper service upon the party. 

AHEITDMENTS. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may 
be allowed by the Commission, in its discretion, to any petition, 
answer, or other pleading in any proceeding before the Commission. 



RULES OF PRACTICE, 35 

ADJOITENKEVT ASD EXTEKSIOV OF TIKE. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the 
application of parties in the discretion of the Commission. 

STIPULATIOSrS. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the Commissioners may, 
by stipulation, duly signed by them and filed with the Secretary, 
agree upon the facts, or any portion of the facts, they deem to be 
involved in the controversy, which agreed statement shall be regarded 
and used as evidence. It is desirable that the facts be thus agreed 
upon whenever practicable. 

EEAsnras. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the Commis- 
sion will assign a time and place for hearing the same, which will be 
at its office in Raleigh, N. C. , unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses 
will be examined orally before the Commission, unless testimony be 
taken or facts agreed upon as otherwise provided in these rules. The 
petitioner or complainant must in all cases prove the existence of the 
facts alleged to constitute a violation of the act, unless the carrier 
complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail to answer the com- 
plaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved by the 
carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to 
answer, the Commission will take such proof of the charge as may 
be deemed reasonable and proper, and make such order thereon as 
the circumstances of the case appear to require. 

wmrEssES and DEPosiTioirs. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued 
by any member of the Commission in all cases and proceedings before 
it, and witnesses will be required to obey the subpoenas served upon 
them requiring their attendance or the production of any books, 
papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements or documents relating to any 
matter under investigation or pending before the Commission. When 
a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or other 
documentary evidence, special application must be made to the Com-

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF PASSENGERS. 

1. Each passenger shall be entitled to baggage not exceeding one 
hundred and fifty pounds. 

2. No more than the schedule of passenger rates shall be charged 
where the ticket office at any station shall not have been open for a 
reasonable time before the departure from a station of the train upon 
which the passenger intends to be transported. 

3. At junction points, where the incoming trains arrive so near 
the leaving time of the out-going train that it is not practicable for 
a passenger to procure a ticket, no more than the schedule of passen- 
ger rates shall be charged. 

4. Railroad companies are authorized to collect the exact mileage 
for passenger fares if they shall make the necessary change to enable 
them to do so; but, if not, no more than the nearest amount ending 
in 5 or o shall be charged. 

5. No railroad company shall be allowed to charge more than ten 
cents for full or half-rate between regular stations when the fare 
would be less than that amount: Provided^ where the distance is not 
greater than two miles or under, the maximum xharge for first-class 
tickets shall be ten cents, and five cents for second-class tickets. 

6. No more than the standard passenger tariff shall be charged 
passengers from flag stations or other stations where tickets are not 
kept on sale. 

7. When, in consequence of the uncertain time of arrival or 
departure of a delayed train, it is impracticable for tickets to be pur- 
chased, no more than the regular standard passenger tariflF shall be 
charged. 



38 BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

8. Where a railroad company has provided agents and ofl5ces, ready 
and open for the sale of tickets, and the passengers, for want of 
proper diligence, fail to supply themselves therewith, before getting 
on the train, then ten cents additional for each passenger twelve years 
old and over may be demanded and collected for all distances not 
greater than ten miles, and twenty cents in like manner for all dis- 
tances not less than ten nor greater than twenty miles, and thirty 
cents in like manner for all distances over twenty miles. Half these 
rates for each passenger over five years old and under twelve years 
may in like manner be demanded and collected: Provided^ however^ 
offices at way stations may be closed one minute before the arrival of 
trains. 

9. The Commission will consider applications for an advance or 
reduction in the standard tariflF for the transportation of passengers, 
but no change of rates shall be of effect or put in force until ratified 
by the Commission: Provided^ that this rule shall not be construed 
as placing any restriction on the privilege of railroad companies to 
make special rates on excursion trains, or to issue what are called 
'* commutation or mileage tickets:" Provided^ no unjust discrimina- 
tion is practiced. 

10. Tickets on sale at any office in a city must be kept on sale at 
the depot ticket-office of the same railroad at the same prices. 

11. That all connecting railroads which are under the management 
and control by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same 
company, or at connection with a different company, shall be required 
to make close connection whenever practicable. 

SLEEPnrG CASS. 

12. The fare in sleeping cars shall not exceed $1.00 for 100 miles 
or less. From 100 to 150 miles, $1.50; between 150 and 200 miles, 
$2.00. When a lower berth with the upper berth not lowered is 
desired, this is subject to special contract. 

13. Railroad Companies in computing passenger rates between 
stations where fractions of a mile are to be considered, will calculate 
for the nearest even number of miles. Example: For a distance of 
10:49 ^il^s or under, charge for ten miles; for 10:50 miles or over, 
charge for eleven miles, and so on. 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 39 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and 
control, by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same com- 
pany, shall, for purposes of transportation, in applying this tariff, be 
considered as constituting but one and the same road, and the rates 
shall be computed as upon parts of one and the same road, unless 
otherwise specified. 

DISTAKCES. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every 
possible distance, the law authorizes the Commission ** to ascertain 
what shall be the limits of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) 
miles has, accordingly, been fixed as the limit for a change of freight 
rates for all distances less than one hundred miles; and ten (10) miles 
for all distances over one hundred miles. The Commissioners reserve 
the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme cases which 
work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of our 
rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) 
miles, the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end 
in o or 5 the nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illus- 
tration: For a distance of twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five 
miles,- for a distance of twenty-eight miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hun- 
dred miles, if the mileage does not end in o, then next ten (10) miles 
group above shall govern the rate. Illustration: For one hundred 
and twenty-one miles charge for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distances under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty 
miles, a reduction of rates may be made without making a change at 
all stations short of two hundred and fifty miles: Provided^ however^ 
that when any railroad shall make a reduction of rates for distances 
over two hundred and fifty miles, the same shall apply to similar dis- 
tances on all the roads controlled by the same company, and in no 
case shall more be charged for a less than a greater distance. 

REGULATIONS COITCEANING FSEiaHT SATES. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum 
rates, which shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may 



40 BOARD OF RAILROAD (X>MMISSIONERS. 

carry, however, at less than the prescribed rates: Provided^ that if 
they carry for less for one person, they shall for the like service carry 
for the same lessened rate for all persons except as mentioned here- 
after; and if they adopt less freight rates from one station, they shall 
make a reduction of the same per cent, at all stations along the line 
of the road so as to make no unjust discrimination as against any 
person or locality. But when there are between any two points in 
this State two or more competing roads not under the same manage- 
ment or in the same system, then the longer line or lines, in order to 
give said points the benefit of competition, may reduce the rates 
between said two points below the standard tariff, without making a 
corresponding reduction at all stations along the lines of said roads: 
Provided^ said reduction shall not make the rates less than the stand- 
ard tariff rates for the shortest line between said points: Provided 
further^ that before taking effect, the proposed change of rates shall 
be submitted to and approved by the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains 
may be one and a-half times that for first-class freight by ordinary 
freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any 
express, or other company, decline or refuse to act as a common car- 
rier, to transport any article proper for transportation by the train for 
which it is offered. 

9. Railroad companies may collect twenty-five (25) cents as a mini- 
mum charge on a single shipment, however small. 

10. No railroad company doing business in this State shall permit 
a blockade of any class of freights on account of any arrangement 
existing between it and other railroad companies as to the transporta- 
tion of freight according to percentages or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any 
bonus be given, or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall 
be uniform to all, and public. 

12. The rates specified for Ores, Sand, Clay, Rough Stone, Com- 
mon Brick, Bone, Lumber, Shingles, Laths, Staves, Empty Barrels, 
Wood, Straw, Shucks, Hay, Fodder, Corn in ear. Tan-bark, Turpen- 
tine, Rosin, Tar, Household Goods, are maximum rates, but the roads 
are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all such rates are 
exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to such 
rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 4 1 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car- 
load shipments of classes L, M, N, O and P, or to load car-load ship- 
ments of naval stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid by 
shippers. 

14. Extra Handling. — The charge for handling extra heavy 
articles, may be as follows, viz. : 

Under 2,000 pounds, no charge for extra handling. 
For 2,000 lbs. and under 3,000 lbs., $ 3 00 for extra handling. 
For 3,000 ** ** *' 4,000 lbs., 5 00 for extra handling. 
For 4,000 *' ** ** 5,000 lbs., 7 00 for extra handling. 
For 5,000 ** *' ** 6,000 lbs., 8 00 for extra handling. 
For 6,000 '* '' ** 7,000 lbs., 10 00 for extra handling. 
For 7,000 and over in proportion. 

15. Fertilizers. — ^This term embraces the following and like 
articles, when intended to be used as fertilizers: Ammonia Sulphate, 
Bone Black, Bones ground or dissolved. Castor Pomace, or Fish Scrap 
Guanos, Alto Vella, Fish, Navassa, Navassa Lump, Peruvian Soluble 
Pacific, Nitrate Cake, Plaster of Paris, Potash — German Salts of. 
Muriate of, Sulphate of — Salt Cake, Lump and Ground Phosphate, 
Soda — Nitrate of and Sulphate of — Tank Stuff, etc. 

16. Vehicles designed for transportation at carrier's risk must be 
properly protected by the shipper with sufficient covering or packing 
from all liabilities to injure from fire, weather, chafing, or other 
injury. 

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments 
exceed the charge per car load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other 
merchandise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in 
good shipping condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper 
packing and intelligent, plain marking, and accompanied with orders 
for immediate shipping. 

19. Car-Load Rates apply to a shipment of a car load or more 
made by one shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of 
delivery, to the same consignee.

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by 
a percentage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on 
the standard tariflF shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced 
classification; but in cases in which the classification of any article is 
raised by percentage, railroad companies which are allowed an 
increase on the standard tariflF shall not apply said increase to the 
already increased classification, but only to the standard tariflf. 

22. B®^When any article is too bulky to put in a box car, it shall 
be subject to special contract. 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car load is 20,000 
pounds, unless otherwise specified. For loads above 20,000 pounds, 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 43 

pro rate at car-load rates charged. A car load of green wood is eight 
cords. A car load' of dry wood is nine cords. A car load of lumber 
(and all articles embraced in lumber) is 24,000 pounds. A car load 
of any article enumerated in Class P, except wood and lumber and 
articles included in lumber, is 25,000 pounds — shippers to .load and 
unload. Provided^ that when a car. is loaded over its marked capacity 
by the shipper, the railroad companies are left free to charge for the 
excess a rate that will effectually stop a practice fraught with so much 
danger to life and property. 

24. The regulations of the railroads as to demurrage or detention 
of cars are matters of police, with which the Commission will only 
interfere upon complaint of abuse. 

25. All roads under the same or different management shall make 
just and reasonable rates for switching and exchange of business at 
connecting points. Rates now in force are continued. Any proposed 
change must first be submitted to the Commission. Any charge now 
in force and shown to work a hardship will be corrected. 

26. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this 
State must be kept open each day (Sundays excepted) for the receiv- 
ing and delivery of freight as follows: From April ist to September 
30th, between the hours of 7 o'clock a. m. and 6 o'clock p. M. From 
October ist to March 31st, 7:30 o'clock a. m., and 5 o'clock p. m., 
with an intermission in each case of one hour, from 12 o'clock noon 
to I o'clock p. M. 

27. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in 
length may charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed 
for ten miles. 

28. On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule i, origi- 
nating and terminating in this State, which shall pass over the whole 
or portions of two or more roads, not under the same control, the 
maximum rates charged on such shipments shall not be greater than 
the sum of the local rates on such freights, less ten (10) per cent., for 
the distance hauled over each road. The total rate thus ascertained 
on such freights, from the point of shipment to the point of destina- 
tion, shall be divided in such proportions between the roads over 
which such freights pass, so as to give to each road interested in the 
shipment its local rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the distance such 
shipment is hauled. Nothing in this rule shall be construed to pre- 



44 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



vent the total of any joint rate made under this rule from being 
divided in such proportions between the roads interested in the same 
as they may agree upon, but a failure to so agree between the roads 
interested shall in no way affect the total joint rate to be charged and 
collected on, or work delay in the transportation of such freights, or 
be a subject of appeal to the Commission by the roads at interest. 

29. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the rail- 
roads may reduce their rates between points so affected without being 
required to reduce intermediate rates: Provided^ however^ that if 
complaint is made that such competition rates unjustly discriminate 
against other places or persons, the Commissioners will investigate 
and rule in each case. 

EXPLANATORY NOTE. 

In the ** Commissioners* Standard Freight Tariff," under the class, 
opposite to the distance, if it ends in o (and if not then opposite the 
next greater distance), will be found the rate required. Example: 
To find the rate for 247 miles, on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word clothing, in the classification, is seen its 
class, i; in the freight tariff under class i, opposite the next greater 
distance, 250 miles, is seen the rate 65 cents; in the column ** miles," 
5 signifies five miles or under; 20, twenty miles or over 15, and so on.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any Class in the Standard Tariff is raised or 
lowered by a per cent, the following rules must be observed: 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 45 

First — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of Classes 
C, D, F, J, or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the 
following examples will indicate: 

Ex. I. — Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent, added — 1.6 

Total 8. 1 From which deduct fraction, leav- 
ing desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard Rate 9.5 

20 per cent, added — 1.9 

Total II. 4 Substituting 5 for the fraction, 

the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3.— Standard Rate 8 

20 per cent, added — 1.6 

Total 9.6 Substituting 5 for the fraction, 

the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard Rate 5.5 

25 per cent, added — 1.3 

Total 6.8 Adding a unit instead of a frac- 
tion, the desired rate is 7 cents. 
Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other Class 
than those already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent 
and estimate half a cent or more as one cent, thus: 

Ex. I. — Standard Rate 17 

20 per cent, added — 3.4 

Total 20.4 Deducting the fraction, the desired 

rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2. — Standard Rate 18 

20 per cent, added — 3.6 

Total 21.6 Estimating the fraction as a unit, 

the desired rate is 22 cents. 
Third. — In making reductions, observe the same manner of 
placing figures before deducting the percentage. 



46 



BOARD OF RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 



Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freiglits where a rate 
per cariload is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car load, and 
estimate their charge pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the first day of April, 1891, 
no change of freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their 
present location, nor the suspension of the sale of tickets, or the 
receiving or forwarding of freights from stations now in use for such 
purposes, will be permitted without the consent of this Commission 
published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construc- 
tion of depot buildings must be filed in the Railroad Commission 
office, with all information needed for a full and proper understand- 
ing of all interests to be affected thereby. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION 

OF LIVE STOCK. 

The weights g^ven below are estimated and hot actual, and are used 
simply to get the rating on Live Stock. To illustrate: One Horse, 
Mule or Homed Animal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds 
of any kind of first-class freight at carrier's risk and second-class at 
owner's risk. Therefore, the freight charges for fifty miles on one 
Horse, Mule, or Horned Animal is the same as on 2,000 pounds of 
second-class freight, and would be, according to the Standard Tariff", 
carrier's risk, 28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5.60, and at owner's risk, 
20 cents per 100 pounds, or $4.00. 



EACH. 

One Horse, Mule or Horned 
Animal 2,000 lbs. 

Two Horses, Mules, or Horned 

Animals 3i5oo lbs. 

Each additional Horse, Mule 
or Horned Animal 1,000 lbs. 

Stallions, Jacks and Bulls 3,000 lbs. 

Yearling Cattle 1,000 lbs. 

Calves and Sheep -_ 175 lbs.

Lambs 100 lbs. 

Lambs in lots of five or more-- 75 lbs. 

Hogs for market 350 lbs. 

Pigs and Stock Hogs 125 lbs. 

Pigs, Hogs, Sheep, etc., boxed 
actual weight. 



STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 47

following maximum valuations: 

Horses and Mules not over $120 00 each. 

Horned Cattle not over 50 00 each. 

Stallions, Jacks and Bulls not over 150 00 each. 

Fat Hogs and Fat Calves not over 15 00 each. 

Lambs, Stock Hogs, Stock Calves not over.- 5 00 each. 

Race Horses, Stallions, Jacks, Bulls, and other high-priced ani- 
mals, when shippers are not willing to have the same transported at 
above valuations, will b^ taken only at the following rates on valua- 
tion given: 

Value from $150 00 to $ 400 00 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 
Value from 400 00 to 600 00 add to regular rate 50 per cent. 
Value from 600 00 to 800 00 add to regular rate 60 per cent 
Value from 800 00 to 1000 00 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 

Over $1,000, subject to special rate by contract. 

Live Stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only 
when contract is executed by shipper and Station Agent 

Mixed shipment of Cattle, Hogs, Lambs, etc., will be taken in car 
loads at car-load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from 
damage to animals caused by their own acts, or to each other, and 
from escape, if not halted, suffocation, exhaustion from heat or cold. 

Sucking Calves accompanying Cows will be charged for at rate for 
single Calves. 

Sucking Colts accompanying Mares will be charged for at double 
the rate for single Calves. 

The word ** calves" used in these Rules and Regulations applies 
only to calves under nine months old; and the words ** Yearling 
Cattle" to cattle over nine months and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, Hogs, Calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken 
at actual weight, carrier's risk, first-class; owner's risk, second-class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a Car Load of Live Stock 
exceed the charge for a Car Load. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water and care for Stock at their 
own expense. When food is furnished by Carrier, a charge will be 
made for the same and collected from Consignee. 



48 BOARD OP RAILROAD COMMISSIONERS. 

One, Two or Three cars of Live Stock will entitle the owner or 
his agent to be carried free to point of destination of consignment, 
on the train with the Stock, to care for the same. Four to seven 
cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, two men in charge; and 
eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men in charge, 
which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be 
carried free for one shipment.

charge for less than 50 lbs. in weight must not be 
greater than the charge for 50 lbs. If less than 
$2.00 (I) per 100 lbs. charge graduated rates. 

Two or more packages weighing each 20 lbs. or 
over forwarded by one shipper at the same time 
to one consignee, may be charged for on the 
aggregate weight as above. 

Packages weighing less than 20 lbs. each 
shipped as in the foregoing section, may be ag- 
gregated, provided they are estimated and charged 
for as weighing 20 lbs. each. Actual weight only 
must be entered on the way-bill. 

If articles of different classes are aggregated, 
the charge must be made at the rate applying to 
the highest class. 

To properly carry out the above provisions in 
regard to aggregating the weights and charges 
on two or more packages sent by one shipper to 
one consignee, receiving clerks and wagon men 
are hereby instructed that in all cases when two 
or more articles are shipped at the same time to 
one address, to mark distinctly on each and every 
article, the number receipted for, and the hour of 
the day, thus: 3 pkgs. 11 a. m., 2 pkgs. 4 p. m. 

All matter must be charged for at actual gross 
weight at time of shipment, unle&s otherwise 
specially provided for. Estimated weights on 
shipments usually made with ice are only to be 
applied when ice is used. When no ice is used 
gross weights must be charged. 



4. Extra Rate Charges.— On matter subject 
to extra rate, as one and one-half or double rate, 
find graduated rate according to tariff, and then 
add one-half, or double it, as required. Exam- 
ple:— If a package weighs 25 lbs. rated at double 
rate, and the rate to destination is |i.oo (E) per 
100 lbs., the chaiige for 30 to 25 lbs. is 50 cents, 
double this,— 9i. 00— is the proper amount. 

5. Valuation Charges.— when the value of any 
merchandise shipment (C. O. D. or otherwise) 
exceeds Iso.oo, the following additional charge 
must be made on value : (Charge for value 
whether insured or not.) 

When merchandise rate is |i.oo or less per 100 
lbs., 5 cents for each $100 value, or fraction 
thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds |i.oo and not 
more than $3.00 per 100 lbs., 10 cents for each $100 
value, or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $3.00 and not 
more than $8.00 per 100 lbs., 15 cents for each $100 
value, or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $8.00 per ico 
lbs., 20 cents for each |ioo value, or fraction 
thereof. 

These rates must not be applied to shipments 
of money or bonds, being intended to apply only 
to packages or shipments of merchandise, jew- 
elry and valuable papers. 

The charges for valuation above given are to be 
made on the through rate, whether carried by 
one or more companies, and in the latter case, 
are to be divided between the companies carry- 
ing, on the same basis as said companies divide 
thetransportation charges, except as noted below. 

7. C. O. D. Matter.— The letters "C. O. D." 
and amount to be collected must be plainly 
marked upon each article with which a bill is 
sent to be collected on delivery, and a similar 
entry made upon the way-bill. If shipper requires 
collection of charges for return of money, the C. 
O. D. envelope and package must be plainly 

marked "C. O. D. $ and return charges," 

and so way-billed. 

Allow examination of C. O. D, matter only upon 
written authority of shipper, endorsed by agent 
at shipping point. When such authority is en- 
dorsed on the transfer envelope, it shall also be 
accepted. Such endorsement not to be made until 
shippers sign an agreement releasing the com- 
pany from all loss incident to such examination. 

All orders to deliver C. O. D. goods without 
collecting C. O. D. must have the approval of the 
agent of the company at the shipping point.

PETERSBURG RAILROAD COMPANY. 



HISTOBT. 

The Petersburg Railroad Company was organized 1830, under laws of Virginia and North Carolina. 

Original charter granted by Act of the General Assembly of the State of Virginia, passed February 
lo, 1830, and by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina at its session of 1830. Amenda- 
tory Acts were passed by the Legislature of Virginia as follows : 1830, 1831, 1832. 1833, 1834, 1836, 1840 
and 1843. 

The charter expired by limitation in 1891. A renewal of the same was granted by the legislature 
for two years, by Act ratified the 9th day of March. 1891. The Legislature refused to renew for a 
longer period than two years, because the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad Company claims exemp- 
tion from taxation, not only for its main line, but for its branch roads as well, and had, in the mean, 
time, become the owner by lease of the Petersburg Road. This right of exemption from taxation 
was not acquiesced in by the Legislature, and suits are now pending to subject the branch roads to 
taxation. In the meantime the Legislature, for these reasons, thought it wise to renew the charter 
for only a short period.

CHARLOTTE, COLUMBIA AND AUGUSTA RAILROAD. 

HISTOBT. 

The Charlotte and South Caroliua Railroad Company was chartered in 1846; road opened in 1852. 
The Columbia and Augusta was chartered in 1865, and the road opened in iSSg. They were consoli- 
dated in July, 1S69. 

The Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad, with its leased lines (Atlantic. Tennessee and 
Ohio Railroad, and Chester and I^noir Narrow-gauge Railroad), is leased to the Richmond and Dan- 
ville Railroad Company for a term of ninety-nine years, from May, 1886. 

The original purpose of the Act incorporating the Charlotte and South Caroliua Railroad Com- 
pany was to establish a communication by rail between the town of Charlotte, North Carolina, and 
some point on the South Carolina Railroad in the State of South Carolina, with a capital stock of 
11,500,000. This corporatioti was exempt from taxation for a period of fifteen years, from January 2, 
1847 — the day on which the Act of incorporation was ratified. It was allowed to increase its capital 
stock to $2,000,000, by an Act to produce conformity in the charters granted to the Charlotte and South 
Carolina Railroad Company, by the States of North and South Carolina, ratified January 29, 1849.

NORTH-WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA RAILROAD 

COMPANY. 

HISTORT. 

The North-Western North Carolina Railroad Company was chartered in 186S. Road opened to 
Winston (Salem), 26 miles, in March, 1873. Extended westward 7 miles in 1888 ; to Donaha early in 
1889, and to Wilkesboro in 1890. The road is virtually owned by the Richmond and Danville Railroad 
Company. 

. The purpose of this Company, as declared in the original Act of incorporation, ratified by the Con- 
vention on the 9th day of March, 1868, was to construct a railroad from some point on the North Caro- 
lina Railroad between the towns of Greensboro and Lexington, nmning by way of Salem and Win- 
ston to some point on the north-western boundary line of the State, to be determined afterwards. It 
was allowed to have a capital stock of $2,000,000.00, and a corporate existence of 99 years. The charter 
was ratified and confirmed by Act of the General Assembly, passed nth day of August, A. D. 1868, 
and the privileges of the Company were afterward enlarged by the Act of the Assembly, ratified the 
2nd day of March. 1S81, allowing it to extend and construct its road from Winston through the coun- 
ties of Forsyth, Davidson, Yadkin, Davie, Rowan and Iredell, or any of them, to Statesville, or some 
other point on the Western North Carolina Railroad, and to build and operate branches thereto.

WESTERN NORTH .CAROLINA RAILROAD COMPANY. 

HISTOBT. 

The Western North Carolina Railroad was chartered February 15th, 1855. Road opened to Old Fort 
in 1869: to Swannanoa in 1879; to Asheville Junction in 1880; to Paint Rock, State line, and a connec- 
tion with the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railway January 28th, i88a. The Ducktown 
branch was opened to Nantahala River October ist, 1884, and to Jarretts in 1887. Road extended to 
Tomotia during 1890. Road completed to Murphy in 1891. 

The State's interest in this road was sold to W. J. Best and associates, under Act of the General 
Assembly, at special session, year 1880, the State receiving in payment therefor |6oo,ooo, being the 
amount of disbursements on account of said road, and purchasers to assume a mortgage debt of 
1850,000, together with all floating indebtedness of the road, and also entering in contract to complete 
the road to Paint Rock and Murphy by a certain stipulated time. 

The road was subsequently transferred by W. J. Best, assigns and associates, to T. M. Logan, W. P. 
Clyde and A. S. Buford, representing the Richmond and West Point Terminal Company. 

The road was subsequently leased to the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company for a term of 
99 years. The purpose of this incorporation was to effect a communication between the North Caro> 
lina road and the Mississippi Valley. This object has now been accomplished. 

No time was fixed in the Act for the expiration of its corporate pow^ers.

HISTOBT. 

The Raleigh and Gaston Railroad Company was organized in the year 1836, under the laws of North 
Carolina, Acts of December, 1835, and January 6, 1845. 

Reorganized September nth, 1851. 

The road was opened from Raleigh to Gaston , in 1844, and extended to Weldon in 1852. The company 
owns a controlling interest in the Raleigh and Aug:usta Air-I,ine Railroad, and a large interest in the 
Durham and Northern Railroad, also the Carolina Central Railroad and the Georgia, Carolina and 
Northern Railroad. 

Charter expires ninety years from December, 1835. It was amended in 1839, '43. '45, '47, '49, '51, '52, 
'55. '6i» ('66, ordinance of convention), '67. In 1871 the section requiring the officers to reside in North 
Carolina was repealed. 

This road has been declared by the courts to be exempt from taxation under its charter, except upon 
its shares of stock. It is the most important link in the Seaboard Air-I^ine System, and was chartered 
by the General Assembly of 1835 for the purpose of effecting a communication by a railroad from 
some point in or near the city of Raleigh to the termination of the Greenville and Roanoke Railroad, 
at or near Gaston, on the Roanoke river, with a capital stock of |8oo,ooo.

CAPE FEAR AND YADKIN VALLEY RAILWAY COMPANY. 

HI8T0B7. 

Organized April ad, 1879, under laws of th; State of North Carolina, Act 25th February, 1879. 

In the year 1833 a charter was obtained and the ground broken for the building of the Cape Fear, 
Yadkin and Pee Dee Railroad ; but it was met by many difficulties, and being regarded as a doubtful 
experiment, the work was abandoned. 

The Western Railroad Compan y was chartered by the General Assembly of the State of North 
Carolina December 24th, 1852, and the Mt. Airy Railroad Company was chartered April 4th, 1871 
(amended February 38th, 1877, also February nth, 1879), consolidated under the name of the Cape 
Fear and Yadkin Valley Railway Company by Act of the Assembly, and ratified the asth day of 
February, 1879, amended the 36th day of March, 1880, and February 27th, 1883. 

The consolidation as above stated was effected in general meeting of the stockholders of the Western 
Railroad Company, held in Fayetteville, N. C, April 3d, 1879. 

Name of the original corporation, the Western Railroad Company, reorgfanised as the Cape Fear 
and Yadkin Valley Railway Company, under Act of the General Assembly, February 27th, 1883, and 
consolidated with the Mt. Airy Railroad Company under the name of the Cape Fear and Yadkin 
Valley Railway Company, for the purpose of extension. 

The road was built from Fayetteville to Hgypt, 43 miles, in i860, and extended from ^gypt to Gulf, 4 
miles, in March, 1879. Road opened between Gulf and Greensboro, June 19th, 1884 ; from Fayetteville 
south to Maxton, August ist, 1884, and through from Greensboro via Fayetteville to Bennettsville, 
S. C, including the leased South Carolina Pacific Railway, on December sth, 1884. 

Road opened from Greensboro to State line December 15, 1884, and extended from Greensboro to 
Belew's Creek, and branch bnilt from Factory Junction to MiUboroin 1886. In 1887 the main line was 
extended from Belew's Creek to Pilot Mountain, and in 1888 from Pilot Mountain to Mount Airy. The 
Madison branch was opened in December, 1888. An extension of the main line from Fayetteville to 
Wilmington, 8a miles, was opened February 17, 189a The road is graded 4 miles beyond Mt. Airy to 
the State line, where a connection with the Norfolk and Western is proposed. 

The corporate powers granted to this company by the Act of the General Assembly of the 24th day 
of December, 1852, were to continue until the year 1900. 

By Acts of the General Assembly, sessions 1879 and 1883, the State surrendered its interests in the 
road to a company of private citizens, and furnished convicts for the completion of the road (an d 
branches) to the Virginia State line.
